Alliance Tire Group is certifiable in India
Alliance Tire Group's tire production facility in India recently was awarded ISO 14001:2004
certification by TUV Rheinland, a third party certification agency for product safety and quality.
The certification is in recognition of the commitment that Alliance has made toward environment protection in its new plant. The company deployed a comprehensive "Environment Management
System" and made significant investments in state-of-the-art monitoring and control equipment to ensure a pollution free environment. Alliance invested in the following:
* effluent and solid waste treatment systems,
* rain water harvesting systems, and
* the development of extensive "Green" belts in different areas of the production site.
As a result of these investments, the facility is rated as “zero discharge” for effluents, i.e. all effluents generated are re-cycled and re-used within the production facility itself. This and the rain water harvesting help minimize consumption of water in the facility.
The off-highway tire manufacturing facility operates near Tirunelveli (South India), very close to the port of Tuticorin (in close proximity to India's rubber growing region). The capacity of the plant is 50,000 tons per annum.
Alliance manufactures and markets agricultural, forestry, construction, industrial and OTR tires under the Alliance, Galaxy and Primex brands.
